The Best Brownies Ever

Now, I know what you're thinking when some vegan claims to have made great brownies, "yeah right!" I totally understand. I worked for 6 years to find great vegan brownies. Most of them are too cakey to be real brownies. It was rather frusterating. I got to the point when I thought real brownies couldn't be made. Until I came across this recipe in livejournal.
Here is the original recipe.

Coconut Brownies
~ 1/4 tub of Earth Balance Buttery Spread, softened
~ 1 cup brown sugar
~ 1/2 cup Florida sugar
~ 4 tsp Ener-G egg replacer + 6 Tbsp water
~ 1 tsp coconut extract
~ 1 tsp baking powder
~ 1/2 tsp salt
~ 1/2 cup cocoa powder
~ 1 and 1/4 cups flour
~ 1 1/2 cup shredded coconut

~1/3 cup chocolate chips
~3 Tbl. soy milk.

Cream together the Earth Balance and sugars.
Add the egg replacer and extract and beat until well combined.
Add the baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and flour and beat until just combined.
Stir in the coconut.
Spread into a 9" square pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
Let cool.
Bring the soy milk to a quick boil, add the chocolate chips and remove from heat.
Pour over and let cool for about 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

I was never truly a brownie fan before this bar. It changed that.

My daughter made these today and the batter was so thick it couldn't be "spread". I added a little soymilk and pressed them into the pan. Is it supposed to be this way?

Hmm. I don't know why it would be too thick. I've always been able to spread the batter. Hopefully they were chewy and yummy.

They are! I don't know what she did "wrong", but they are very good.
